Back in my hippie days, it was all about tuning in & dropping out. Today it’s all about catching up & fitting in. Catching up with those we assume are miles ahead, and fitting in with those we assume have arrived.
Important because if catching up and fitting in hasn’t worked for you, perhaps you should try “tuning in & dropping out.” Tuning in to that which moves us closer to what we say matters most to us. And dropping out of those distracting activities (and people) that slow the progress of getting there. Not like a hippie, more like a committed, purpose-driven artist/trep.
